By "they" I mean Motorola wanting to delay it and not wanting to go head to head with the iphone. I just don't think Motorola would release their baby just before or at the same time the iphone is rumored to launch. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but I think if they can get it out in the early part of September (with ICS) then great, if not then we will probably get JB and a November launch. I hope I'm wrong but I just don't see a launch in the next 6 weeks.

As for Verizon, of course they wouldn't care if it was released with the iphone. They would love to have the 2 biggest phones on their network at the same time. I just mention them as being a likely cause for delaying the launch with their infamous testing if JB is added.
